In the demo there is a quotation mark and a title in bold above the quote itself. How do I such styling?
(it isn’t mentioned in the Quotes post format sippet txt file, nor the quote post title works like this)
Sorry I must have done something wrong the first time.
Is it possible to change the featured image size for a quote post? It is much smaller than the standard feature image and looks a bit off when you enlarge the font.

Only way is to make sure your image is the size that the other one is. The theme does not automatically create a custom thumbnail image for this. One of many reasons why I like to recommend to people when you need to insert an image, upload it the size that you need.July 3, 2014 at 10:32 pm #20205
Not sure if the problem is only there. I’ve just change the quotes feature image size to 300x200px. It appears 180x120px on the blo page. What am I doing wrong?July 4, 2014 at 1:46 am #20208
hard to say without seeing it live so I can see the code.July 4, 2014 at 7:38 am #20216
Thanks for the link….now I understand and see…unfortunately not easily done because the “Quote post format” is a different style than the standard blog post which is why you see it different there. If you look at the demo site for Preferential, then go to the “WordPress” menu, you can see all the different WP post formats available, each with it’s own unique style and layout.
What I did with the post formats so they don’t show up in the main blog except standard posts was to create a category, for example: Quotes
I then used a plugin called Simply Exclude and used that to not show the “Quotes” category in the blog and the category widget. I then made a menu link to the Quotes category.July 4, 2014 at 8:04 am #20218
Aha. So for standard posts feature images you recommend resizing the photos exactly how one wants it should look like on the website. However, for quotes, the image size is predefined by the theme. Interesting. And it doesn’t really expect people would have all recent posts (whatever type) descending on the blog page (like in default WP themes).
Thanks for explaing. Could you just guide me to understands quotes posts images behaviour… is it the max height that is defined?July 4, 2014 at 8:10 am #20219
Basically yes to the photos….size them to what you need them for. It’s a little extra work but beneficial….of course, this is only my recommendation and not a requirement.
The quotes is structured with a container already built into the layout which is just 3 grid columns wide which is why the image downsizes to fit that container. The image regardless of it’s size will become the size you see (just like on the live demo site). Post formats are styled differently on themes, depending on how the designer chooses to make it look for that theme and for what post format. Post formats are part of WordPress http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Formats
For the quote format…again, this can be styled in many ways depending on what the theme developer has done. I made it so that you can use it for quotes or testimonials. They do not have to have a featured image either, it can just be the quote.July 5, 2014 at 7:09 pm #20223
OK, thanks for the precisions. I’ll use the image size as in demo, to make things simple. But – the code says the image is 200x200px. Measuring the image says 181x181px. So what size should the images I upload be? It’s not specified in the instructions or I apologize if I overlooked that information.July 5, 2014 at 8:25 pm #15329
The image is 200×200 so it gives a little room when it downsizes in the container it sits in. It’s also easier to remember 200×200 than 181×181 pixels.
